News and Ideas for Parents of Teens

Money Matters

For many children, getting an allowance is their first introduction to money. Maybe it’s $5 a week for keeping their room clean or emptying the dishwasher, or $20 for mowing the lawn. Whatever the amount, it serves as a basic introduction to financial literacy.

Classes that Work

Career and technical education programs jump-start students’ professional success.

Joshua Gilbert has learned a lot about hacking lately, and not just because of the news. The 17-year-old senior at Centennial High School in Ellicott City is being taught how to secure networks as well as how to attack them.
 This is not the high school computer science class of 20 years ago. Gilbert is a student in the Howard County school system’s cybersecurity program. His teachers are industry professionals who have tried to port as much of their experiences into as close of a classroom simulation as possible. He’ll graduate with a certification that can help get his foot in the door working in network support — and he’ll then begin an internship with the National Security Agency.

A new suite of tools will provide an additional level of support for students during the college planning and application process. The University of Maryland has launched a new application program, developed by the Coalition for Access, Affordability, and Success, that includes a free platform of online tools to streamline the college planning and application process. The Coalition is a diverse group of public and private colleges and universities from across the country where the goal is to improve the college admission application process for all students.
